Museo San Ildefonso

In 1994, the building was opened permanently as a cultural center and museum administered jointly by the National Autonomous University of Mexico, National Council for Culture and Arts and the government of the Federal District of Mexico City.

Located in the Historic center, the Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso is a space for temporary exhibitions which also has its own heritage: forged when it was an important Jesuit college and hosted the National Preparatory School, between 1867 and 1989, it also hosts outstanding murals made between 1922 and 1940 by the leading artists of the Mexican muralist movement.
The museum is directed by Bertha Cea Echenique.
